MONTREAL, Que. — Transtex Composite says it is suing Ridge Corporation for patent infringement over alleged violations of eight patents related to aerodynamic trailer side skirt technology.
The company is seeking injunctive relief against the infringement as well as damages.
“Intellectual property is something we take very seriously as we believe breakthrough innovations will occur only if IP rights properly protect significant investments in research and development,” said Patrick Beauger, executive vice-president at Transtex Composite. “Products infringing on our patents are being sold and we are taking action against such infringement.”
Transtex Composite produces the Maximum Flex Skirt (MFS), which it says improves fuel economy by up to 7.3%.
